Northern Territory Times. PALMERSTON: FRIDAY, MAY 8, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 8 May 1874

Jjtoi[tIuîi[u Ü^niiörjr SPimrs. Palmerston : Friday, May 8, 1874. It is seldom that the Local Court is occupied for the best part of two days with such a paltry case as that of Connor v. Clarkson. In this case the complainant, who is Senior War- den of the Goldfields (residing in Palmerston where there are no gold- fields), complained that the defendant had libelled him, and asked for £100 damages, that being the highest amount which he could sue for in this Court, and which must not there- fore be taken as the utmost value which he puts upon his character. But, after a patient hearing, and after listening to a lot of witnesses, who were brought up like a string of schoolboys to speak to the meaning of a word about which nobody dis- puted, the Court instead of giving the very highest amount which the law allowed here, and which the plaintiff claimed, actually contented them- selves by awarding him a miserable £5! We hope that Mr. Connor is satis- fied with this, and that those perso...

From Port Darwin to Escape Cliffs. (By a Correspondent.) (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times and Gazette — 15 May 1874

From Port Darwin to Escape Cliffs. (By s Correspondent.) (Concluded.) Thursday, April 23.-Found our boat once more aground, although we had brought up so far from the shore, so it was deemed advisable for two of our party to proceed on shore to boil our billy, and make all ready for an early start. As soon as the tide allowed the boat followed, and we started away at 8 a.m. lor the Vernons, the wind blowing very fresh from N.E. After sailing along for two miles the wind freshened into a steady gale : this, meeting a contrary current caused rather too much of a tumble for our craft to stand without shipping water, so we thought dis- cretion the better part of valour^ and changed our course, steering direct for Point Charles. Took in single reef, and soon after double-reefed the sail, and then we had as much sail as it "was safe to carry. Ran on past the Point and roundífor Point Fright, but in trying our last passage ran aground on a coral reef, where we nad to remain until the next ...

Milling Commission. Palmerston, May 12, 1874. Present-Mr. G. B. Scott (Presi- dent), Mr. Connor, Mr. Price, and the Secretary, Mr. Melville. A letter was read from W. K. Griffiths, asking if he was to come before the Commission as an appli- cant or an objector. His object was to enter an opposition to W. W. Mills, the registered holder of claim, No. 4' South, Union Reef, Pine Creek. The Court said that as Mr. Grif- fiths was not the registered holder he must be considered as an ob- jector, and must enter his opposition accordingly. Dr. Kaufmann asked the Com- mission's opinion as to the con- struction of the 95th clause of the Act, which related to the time (ten clays) for making appeals. The Court said that the Local Court and not the Commission had to do with that part of the Act. Dr. Kaufmann asked the opinion of the Commission as to some apparent inconsistencies in the 10th Schedule of the Act.
